Publisher's Description
After examining political and economic structures of power in Protokoll and Tropical Gift, in the publication In Jesus' Name photographer Christian Lutz turns his focus on the ritual and social behavior patterns within a religious organization. For several months he has documented the evangelical group “International Christian Fellowship” in Switzerland. With a coolly distanced view, his photographs show the yearning for belonging and for jointly experienced spirituality that is made manifest in large religious events. They reveal that at such meetings — in stadiums but also in remote camping sites — location and clothing play a less important role than the experience of community and cultic ritual. Lutz critically questions the emotionally charged meetings and reveals parallels to other social mass events such as rock concerts or football matches.
